Why You Should be Specific

What is your strategy when crafting a compelling giveaway? Do you advertise an expensive and popular item that is trending in the marketplace at the time? Or do you offer an item that will appeal to your specific target audience? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Chris and Scott as they break down why sellers like you need to be specific in your giveaways and avoid the generic offers. While you might get a lot of interest if you give away an Xbox or an Amazon Fire Stick, it won’t get you very far if those items don’t connect to your specific category and the type of buyers you are trying to attract to your list. Consider using an item that is popular among your niche audience so you get people who will be genuinely interested in what your brand has to offer.
